Cloudy red oak color. Aromas and flavors of freshly pureed raspberries, candied lemon peel, lemon vinaigrette marinated artichoke hearts, and raspberry tea with a supple, racy, spritzy, sourish medium-to-full body and a complex, very long roasted Brussels sprouts and kennebec potatoes, gherkins and cocktail onion, pickled melon, rhubarb and root vegetables, and hibiscus-lilac mineral water finish. A fantastically pure and complex raspberry flavored Berliner Weisse with enchanting and mouthwatering savory notes.

Flavored Berliner Weisse

A relatively new take on the relatively newly resurrected Berliner Weisse style of sour wheat beer, these beers are typically flavored with fruit juices, sometimes to offset the tartness of the base beer with fruity sweetness, sometimes to amplify that tartness with citrus juices. As sour beers continue to grow in popularity and diversity, the lightness, balance, and refreshing appeal of flavored Berliner Weisses makes a great introduction to sour beers.
